Trans Am Trail, Marshall Pass Colorado, Still washed out?
 
I rode most of the transam trail in 2007 and found this pass was badly washed out. Does anyone know if it is passable as I am returning this June (2012) to ride Calgary to Salida then TAT to Richfield then Las Vegas returning to UK via Long Beach Ca.
Any detail on the current state of the trail Colorado/Nevada would be welcome.

We rode the whole TAT last year, Sam had changed some sections and I don't know how old your maps are. Probably best to drop Sam a line - I doubt any one will know the condition at this time of year.
We managed the passes on loaded XT660's in the rain but we did have the new maps.

Marshall Pass was fine when I crossed it in 2009. I was in Salida a few weeks ago, too much snow to cross on 2 wheels but my friend in town said it was fine. Worst case you can always take the fun way over Hancock and Tomichi! :thumbup1: Sam's new maps bypass those I hear unfortunately but there are several ways over the mountains there. Worst case US 50 is an option.
